I must be completely missing something here. And every search on the internet
for solutions on this have pretty much ended in single responses to a posting
and no follow up afterwards. Here's what I have:

I'm running qmail 1.03 with vpopmail on FreeBSD 4.5. I have downloaded and
installed mailman 2.0.13. I changed the MTA type to "qmail" through the
mm_cfg.py file. Doing a "newlist" sends an e-mail just fine to me.I "su"ed and
ran the code that was spit out by newlist to put the .qmail files in the alias
directory. Going on the /mailman/listinfo page and signing up from there sends
an e-mail fine as well. I even ran: tcprules /etc/tcp.smtp.cdb
/etc/tcp.smtp.tmp < /etc/tcp.smtp (with relay info in there, including and local IP block... it IS a.b.c.:allow,RELAYCLIENT="" right?)
Sending the confirm message _fails_. I called my list "qqq" so I could test it
without trying to parse through previous tests with a mailing list named

I see no failure messages. I tried it twice even. I tried it with the .qmail
files in the /home/vpopmail/domains/moufette.com/ directory.

Could somebody PLEASE explain how to get mailman to PROPERLY work with qmail?
